January 5, 2017

Williams-Sonoma is recalling limited quantities of WILLIAMS-SONOMA MEYER LEMON POPPY SEED QUICK BREAD, as it has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella. Williams-Sonoma issued the recall after an ingredient supplier announced a recall for milk powder used in the affected product.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.

The affected Williams-Sonoma Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed Quick Bread was shipped to Williams-Sonoma retail stores nationwide from August 2016-present. The details of the recalled product are as follows: Williams-Sonoma Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed Quick Bread, NET WT. 1 pound 2 ounces, packaged in a yellow paper bag with SKU 7839186(located on price sticker).
